Postdoc Workshop #6: Anglesey Abbey

Today Jean-François Mercure and I organised the sixth Postdoc Photo Workshop. This time we went to Anglesey Abbey, and had two models with us. Anita Friis Sommer dressed in a medieval Tudor dress, and Wendy Min Ji Choi in a classical Korean dress.

A simple full length shot. The skies were cloudy, which makes the shadows soft, but a little bit of blue in the background would have looked nice.

Anita in her Tudor dress. Here I asked her to walk towards the camera to give the photo a sense of motion.

Anglesey Abbey is famous for its birches, which they wash to keep really white. I photographed Anita from slightly below to make her pose look more regal.

Same idea as the previous photo, shot from slightly below.

I liked the red colour on Anita’s dress, but I wanted to see what it looked like in black and white. There is a bit of texture added on top of the photo to make it look older.
